Curry and Maple Sweet Potato Soup

Curry and Maple Sweet Potato Soup

I love sweet potatoes. For one, they cook a lot faster than regular potatoes (I’m impatient!) and they have so much natural flavor. And if you’ve ever had sweet potato fries, you know just how versatile this root vegetable can be. Spicy and sweet, this sweet potato soup is bound to become a fall favorite.

3. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes until they just begin to soften. Then add 4 cups of the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.

4. Once the sweet potatoes are fully cooked and just about to fall apart, remove from the heat.

5. Doing 1 cup at a time, puree the sweet potato and broth mixture in a food processor.

6. Transfer the pureed mixture back to the soup pot and add the curry and maple syrup. Also add the remaining vegetable broth. You want just enough to make it soupy, you might not use it all.

7. Bring the soup to a low simmer to have the flavors meld.

8. Let cool to an edible temperature and then salt to taste.

Enjoy!
